York property firm expands after record-breaking year

RM English, the York-based based property firm, has expanded its residential department with two senior appointments in the wake of a record-breaking year.

JontyLightowler, one of North Yorkshire’s most experienced residential property agents, has joined the company as the principal valuer, while Julie Butters has been appointed as the senior sales negotiator.

Jonty joins from Dacre Son and Hartley, while Julie comes from Stephensons.

John Burley, managing director of RM English, commented: “We are delighted to have recruited two such experienced and talented people. Jonty has worked in and around York for many years and he has a first class understanding of the local property market.

“A countryman at heart, he is equally at ease in the city, dealing with the interesting period homes with which RM English are becoming synonymous.

“Meanwhile Julie is a determined negotiator and will use her experience in the York market to great effect, advising vendors and providing purchasers with lots of local insights.

“We now have one of the most experienced residential agency teams in York,” he said.

Mr Burley added: “The last few months have been a busy time for the York office of RM English. In addition to selling a record number of houses, we have launched a new web site and undertaken a major rebranding, which puts a more modern slant on our traditional image.

“This is a very exciting time in the property market and we are now perfectly positioned to take advantage of the opportunities which lie ahead.

“Our new appointments will complement the existing multi-disciplinary approach we adopt.”
